The Darkroom Gallery Difference

"Contemporary landscape photography's insights and observations reach far beyond the natural environment. A close examination of the land will often reveal more about ourselves  as individuals, communities, and society at large." Thomas Bachand.

Juror's Statement:

The submissions were inspiring and insightful. After careful consideration, I first selected those images that struck me on an emotional level, and then culled further based on the photographer's intent and technical execution, including composition, exposure, focus, and effects. The strongest photographs speak to the subject on many levels. The Juror's Choice, "Buffalo on Road in Lamar Valley", took my breath away. The power of this photograph lies as much with that which is unseen as seen. The bison are unaware that the land has been "saved" and placed on display. We look out from behind glass at a pristine landscape detached from its history.

Juror: Thomas Bachand

Thomas Bachand has been a professional photographer for over a decade, working in both traditional and digital mediums. His photography has appeared in magazines, advertisements, brochures, and textbooks - both in print and on the web. He writes on digital imaging issues for professional trade publications and lecturers on photography and technology issues.

Tom is the author of  Lake Tahoe: A Fragile Beauty. In addition to private collections, his photography can be found in the Bancroft Library and the California Historical Society.

Thomas Bachand's photography is a consideration of the land and the competing visions that inform our interaction with the world at large. Core to the work is its accessibility to the viewer. The use of color and a documentary style allow for an open and immediate connection to the subject. By embracing a historical perspective, the photography captures a sense of honesty characteristic of the medium's early pioneers. Whether creating a single, evocative image inviting reflection or a series conveying a sense of time and place, Bachand's exploration includes the role of storyteller. He seeks a convergence of the ordinary - extraordinary only in so much as it is revealing, offering both possibility and contemplation.

The Vermont Photo Space Gallery helps photographers grow by providing opportunities to have their work evaluated by a qualified juror for display in our Vermont gallery with very little expense or hassle. We provide free archival quality matting and framing of accepted entries for each of our exhibitions, subject to standard sizes. Photographers retain the rights to their work and set their own prices for sale in the gallery.
